Our monthly storytelling circle is a fantastic way to start your Wednesday night. Our host this month is Hubert Furey, who comes equipped with humurous recitations from a bygone NL era. And we welcome anyone who wishes to tell a story – seasoned teller or first timer. Not up for telling a tale? Not to worry! Cozy up and enjoy – we always need listeners too! When we’ve clued up here, why not stroll down the street to The Ship for Folk Night? What more could you ask for on a Wednesday!
 
 

ABOUT OUR HOST

HUBERT FUREY

 

It started with a comical tale about raisin bread, baked in an outport kitchen… without raisins. Today, Hubert Furey has been more surprised than anyone by what has followed for him. The outpouring of interest for his recitations about rural life in yesteryear Newfoundland and Labrador led to a full-length recording of stories. Concerts, live theatre performances, television and radio appearances promoting recitations, and the resurgence of the art form have been a delight for this former district superintendent of education and lifetime Harbour Main resident. Hubert and his wife, Eleanor, have five children and six grandchildren. The Most Perfect Gift is his second book. His first, As the Old Folks Would Say, earned critical acclaim .

 


The St. John’s Storytelling Circle runs the second Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Erin’s Pub, with opportunities for new storytellers to spin a yarn. Erin’s Pub is located at 186 Water Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
